“HITA: Hinanao-ñiha I Taotåo-ta Åntes”, Meaning: Our way of life long ago. HITA is a historic and unique new project that blends Chamorro Culture, Language, Art, Animation, and Student Participation. The culmination of these important elements being the creation of the first Chamoru language animated film titled
“ Maisa, the Chamoru Girl who Saves Guåhan” which mixes live action, cgi, and 2d animated components to create a visually rich and exciting version of the classic Chamoru tale of “The Maidens that saved Guam”.
GDOE students participated in both the voice over and creation of key art for the production, while local actors and actresses worked side by side with Twiddle and Kahmeleon Productions in Guam for the filming of the live action segments.
